Ed Rigg helps New Hope Club put on a secret show for their fans in a fun, energetic performance clip.

Playing to an empty room is no fun, but even when you're a handsome young boyband currently on an arena tour around Europe, there's always the danger. Mercifully, New Hope Club's fans are ready to drop everything to come and cover their idols in some powdered paint as they sing their hearts out in a London loft. The performance clip is fun and filled with genuine candid moments of the fans celebrating with their favourite band.

Ed Rigg:

​"The guys at New Hope Club wanted to give their fans a live performance of some sort, and I wanted to (1) get the crowd seriously excited and (2) an excuse to have a party with the band and their fans. We ordered a load of smoke grenades, confetti, coloured paint and warned everyone their clothes may get ruined... We needn't have worried the fans were true to their reputation and everyone got hyped - it came through really well on camera, great shoot."
